This show was absolutely insane. The crowd there was rowdy, crazy, and loving every minute of DSO rocking this 74 show. I couldn't have asked for anything better. I've seen DSO about 10 or 15 times and this was without a doubt the best one I've seen them play. I hope these guys don't stop.

Thank you for uploading this!!! I didn't even know it was here so early!
I wouldn't call this the best DSO show i ever went to, but it was fucking good. Rob and John were quite on that night, and having only one drummer for the show really helped smooth things out (and make it more realistic for the date they were playing).
Would have loved to hear some FIYA after the 74 scarlet, but i understand it would have been a little out of place :)
This recording is quite good, so thank you very much for taping and up'ing this! I appreciate it greatly considering i strangely never seem to remember these DSO shows i go to so clearly ... haha

Absolutely The Best Ever!
I've seen 30+ Dead shows and probably about 10 DSO shows and this was, without a doubt, one of the best shows of all of them. 17 song first set list and a 4 hour concert to boot!
The dedication during the first track (Tuning/Crowd) was to my nephew Phillip, who was 18 and died tragically on April 13th on his way to see the Allman Brothers at the Wanee Festival. Really cool of the band to dedicate the Atlanta show to my nephew.
